How to Make Chamomile Tea with Fresh Flowers – This recipe for homemade chamomile tea has hints of sweetness and apple that can only be found in a cup made with fresh flowers.
This season there has been a delightful new addition at my CSA- fresh chamomile flowers! I haven’t seen many people taking them, and since they make such delicious tea, I can only guess that people don’t know how to make chamomile tea with fresh flowers.
I had to do some reading and experimenting myself, but found that it’s quite easy to make. The reward is nothing like dried chamomile tea.
It’s sweeter, without the hint of bitterness that many dried teas have. It also has fruity, apple undertones that I’ve never tasted in chamomile before.
During my most recent visit to my CSA it was an unusually chilly day and it started pouring while I was picking flowers and herbs. Naturally I couldn’t help but make this cup of tea when I got home.
I enjoyed it so much that I couldn’t help sharing this recipe with you, and perhaps these flowers will have a place in my own garden next season!
So, whether you’re a passionate tea drinker or just want to try something new, if you have the opportunity, fresh chamomile tea is worth a try!
